Yum! Brands

An Elire Success Story

Client Summary

Yum! Brands, Inc., based in Louisville, KY, has over 43,500 restaurants in more than 135 countries and territories.  The Company’s restaurant brands – KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell – are the global leaders of the chicken, pizza, and Mexican-style food categories. 

Scope of Project

Yum! Brands migrated their legacy PeopleSoft application to Oracle Cloud HCM, as well as implemented Oracle Cloud Expenses for their corporate employees. 

The Challenge

The journey to the Cloud for Yum! was paved with difficulties due to their size, complexity, and global presence. The recent go-live is the first phase of a multi-year, global IT transformation project.

Success Delivered™

Elire played a critical role in all aspects of the project, from environment management and conversions to functional setup and reporting. 

Members of the Elire team led the overall Reporting Strategy for the Design, Build, and Testing of Yum! Phase 1 reports. This included critical validation reports during the implementation as well as operational user reports that would be leveraged post go-live.

Using Elire’s deep PeopleSoft experience and command of the Oracle Cloud import tools such as HDL, Benefit Batch Loader & Payroll Batch Loader, Elire lead the conversion effort and developed tools and processes to handle Yum’s 30 years of historic data spanning multiple work relationships.  These tools and processes will be reused during Phase 2 for the full population of over 40k non-franchise workers.

“Yum! Brands, Inc. is officially on Oracle Cloud HCM & Expenses for Phase One of a multi-year project, and we couldn’t have been successful in this journey without the Elire team.  Elire has partnered with us on every aspect of our initiative – conversion, integrations, and functional setup and configuration.  They’ve been an amazing partner to us for many years on our PeopleSoft implementation efforts, and it’s been great to work with them again on this Oracle Cloud transformation. “ – Rita Tompkins, Director, IT Shared Services at Yum!
